Anime 2007 calendar scans!


The four 2007 anime calendars that I had preordered from CDJapan(Bleach, Inuyasha, Pokemon, and Konjiki no Gashu Bell) arrived yesterday. And since I had nothing much to do today, I made scans of all of them and posted them on the main site ^_^ You can see all 28 of them on the Anime Import Calendar Scans page(along with all the other calendar scans I’ve posted from previous years.) Just like pretty much all anime calendars straight from Japan, the artwork on them is absolutely gorgeous! ^.^ Enjoy!

Inuyasha: why there should be a new TV series


With Inuyasha being my most favorite series of all, this is something that’s been on my mind for a while now. And now that all the episodes have aired on Adult Swim, I feel even more obliged to get my point across…

Bleach review: an overrated shounen anime?


Well, the Bleach TV series has finally reached 100 episodes, so I figured it was time for me to write a review of the series ^_^ I remember it was a little over a year ago today that I got my new computer and was finally able to download anime fansubs, and Bleach was one of the first I checked out. At first, I didn’t really like it all that much until the episodes hit the late teens or so. 100 episodes later, it still isn’t one of my all-time favorites, but I do like it a lot and will continue to keep watching it.

Kanon eps 1 & 2 Review


 
I’ve actually never watched the original Kanon series from 2002. But a while back I felt like reading up on what the new fall 2006 anime series’ were going to be about, and after I read about Kanon, it sounded like a very interesting story. Plus I really enjoyed Air, and since it’s by the same company, I figured Kanon should be worth checking out.

Death Note eps 1 & 2 Review



I was originally planning to write a review of just the first episode of Death Note. But it took a while before I finally had the time to watch it, and by then the second episode was already out, so I figured why not write a review on both instead =P Anyway, just so you know, this review is written by someone who has never read the Death Note manga. I’m not as big a fan of the style of manga as I am of anime, so I decided to wait until the series was made into an anime. Before I watched the episodes, I only had a vague idea of what the series is about and that’s it, so my mood is that of a very satisfied new fan ^^ The series sounded interesting and I heard good things about the anime, so I decided to give it a try…

Game review: Pokemon Diamond & Pearl(J. version)


Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are the latest and highly anticipated Pokemon games for the Nintendo DS. Even long before they were officially released, they were one of the hottest and most talked about topics among Pokemon and video game fans. I’m sure even most anime fans have heard about the hype that these games have received as well. The games were officially released in Japan on Sept. 28th, and my copy of Pearl that I had preordered arrived on Oct. 4th(see scans I made above.) I’ve been playing it fervently ever since, but I finally decided to take a break from playing it and write a review of it instead =P Now, I’ve been a major Pokemon fan for nearly 8 years and I’ve played every generation of the games that have come out, so you’re probably going to think I’m biased when I say this, but Pokemon D&P totally rock.

New Bleach dub+rant: “Give English VAs a break”

Well, Bleach has finally been officially released in America. And even though it didn’t seem to create quite a reaction as when Naruto was officially released, it’s still a pretty big deal for Bleach fans. As of my writing this, I’ve watched Bleach fansubs up to episode 98 and I’ve watched the 5 dubbed episodes that have aired on Adult Swim so far…and I’m happy to report that I’m pleased with the dub.
